Which Madden NFL 18 GOAT Edition Player Should You Get?

Not sure which Madden NFL 18 GOAT edition player to get?  Scott Cole aka Coltrane walks you through it.

  • Tom Brady – only if you’re a pure pocket passer. Devin Wade from longshot has better mobility and throw on the run.
  • Barry Sanders – Great speed and elusiveness, but with Gamestop’s Bo Jackson or so many elite RBs you’ll be fine without him.
  • Jerry Rice – The real GOAT. He’s a great WR but not top end speed and there’s so many to choose from this year including Gamestop’s Randy Moss and Doritos Calvin Johnson.  Colt Cruise from Longshot is a great option too.
  • Ray Lewis – My Pick because he’s already at Top 10 MLB in the game on launch and he has the speed to be versatile against the passing game and running game.
  • Deion Sanders – If you have a second pick with the GOAT Edition plus the GOAT edition upgrade pack, go with Prime Time.  Most schemes you’ll need 3 or 4 CBs anyway.  He also provides you with a valuable Kick Returner.

    I still haven't picked. It's between Lewis and Sanders ....

    Bought another GOAT pack in the store. Only thing, not sure if you will be able to upgrade both down the line or just one of them.

    Of course, now I'm already dumping my special players. At least while activating Chems does not incur a cap hit. All you get is credit for the team he plays for.
    Like with Brady, if you combine him with two other Patriot players in the starting line up, you get a small boost. But with Alex Smith, I get the Chiefs boost, and a Move the Chains boost that bumps stuff like Catch in Traffic. They are small boosts, but increase with more players. Three is tier one. Six is tier two, and so on. They also stack. So right now I'm trying to maximize the boosts, which can boost player and team OVR, but not at a cap hit. Last year there was a cap hit for every Chem activated.

    I went with Deion Sanders, not only is he a shutdown corner but his punt return skills are pretty damn good.

    I went with Prime Time for the same reasons. It was between him and Barry Sanders, but I went with Deion because I thought he could have more effect on the game than Barry.
    Haven't had a chance to play with him, but the fact that he is a return beast, in a year when they game seems tuned to make it easier to run back kicks, it think he can have a bigger impact than the other guys. There is an advantage in having Elite returners as great regular position players.

    The more I play the more I know Brady was the wrong choice. Just playing Longshot alone gets you an 82 Marino and an 84 Wade. I think Deion Sanders is really the way to go. His return skills are the tiebreaker between him and Lewis to me. Remember how expensive Dri Archer was last year?

    I went with Lewis.... Didn't need a corner as I got lucky a have several elites at the position already
    I also have that KC Wr Hill for my return man. He has 91 speed

    He's a great choice, does well against the pass and is returning kicks like a beast. You can get Dan Marino through Longshot and a Chad Johnson as well. Was a no brainer for my MUT.
    Went with Lewis (who I never could stand), but I needed a playmaker at the line (LOOK at those atrirubutes) and I have a few high rated gold's at CB. Champ Bailey is a reward in a challenge as well, so this decision wasn't too difficult.

    As a Titans fan who watched Ray Lewis break Steve McNair's ribs and bully Tennessee into early playoff exits, I will have to go with Prime Time as my pick, once I get enough Baby Goats to trade in for a Goat. Ray won't ever play for my team, regardless of his ratings.
    I initially took Deion Sanders, and I have him upgraded to 86 currently. I avoid putting him in Press defenses, but other than that he covers really well.
    I traded in some used games at Gamestop and got "points" so I purchased RB Barry Sanders; I just really liked him as a player. I will upgrade him to his full 87 rating.
    I considered LB Ray Lewis, but I can user a MLB in my 3-4 and I know better zone cover LB's will be out there, like the Eagles Jordan Hicks; then I can always user a Ryan Shazier.
    So Deion Sanders was the key choice so I don't have to worry about one side of the field, essentially; and with the ability to change up zones, manually, I can lean all my coverages to one side of the field.
